Concerning your reply about Murphy Oil preparing for Katrina was very
different than almost every other business except maybe the other refinerys.
It has a procedure in place to fill the crude/product tanks to a certain
capacity, and it was not followed for some reason. How many other
businesses have this type of procedure I really do not know. But this is
not only about money it is about peoples health, which you can put a price
tag on that. Watch what happpens when we get heavy rains for along time I
will almost put money that we will have oil coming up out of the soil. >
